# Homophone riddle 8

It feels like such a long time that I didn't post one...

 It might be something 10 feet away from you
Or it could be a verb
In movies, this would be an escape route
I chose these because of me

• Wait, homophone or homonym??? – Kevin L Oct 22 '18 at 3:19
• Homophone, if you saw my other 7 – Duck Oct 22 '18 at 3:34

Maybe a

Duct

It might be something 10 feet away from you

they're common in most buildings?

Or it could be a verb

"I Ducked" or maybe it's a ventilation duct and I "vented"

In movies, this would be an escape route

Escape through a noisy thin metal tunnel because the aliens/zombies/bad-guys are hard of hearing in Hollywood

I chose these because of me

Duck-t

• Homophone of... rot13[qhpxrq] :P – jafe Oct 22 '18 at 7:30
• Yes! I knew the "I chose these because of me" was a dead giveaway – Duck Oct 22 '18 at 14:37
• I actually got it from the movie escape route more than anything – Brent Hackers Oct 25 '18 at 7:05

Is it:

CEILING / SEALING?

It might be something 10 feet away from you

The ceiling is about 10 feet from the ground.

Or it could be a verb

"Sealing", that is to seal something is a verb, and a homophone because they are pronounced the same.

In movies, this would be an escape route

I'm sure I've seen movies where people have escaped through the ducts in the ceiling.

I chose these because of me

Well, your name is Duck. This could either because you have to "duck" for a low ceiling (or if you crawled through a ceiling space); or perhaps because of the "ducts" that run through ceilings?

• At the end: Or for the tape? – Chronocidal Oct 22 '18 at 13:56

Even though the answer is supposed to be a homophone, I found a homonym that fits all the descriptions

Water

It might be something 10 feet away from you

Well, there's a sewer right outside of my house and it has water

Or it could be a verb

Water as a verb like to "water" plants

In movies, this would be an escape route

Well, many actors jump into the water when they have to escape from a ship in a movie

I chose these because of me

Ducks, just like your beautiful name, swim in water

• nice answer, but that isn't a homophone though – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Oct 22 '18 at 3:24
• @ShahriarMahmudSajid Yea, I know it's not. But it fits everything right? XD – Kevin L Oct 22 '18 at 3:25
• Sorry, nope! Think about homophones and movies – Duck Oct 22 '18 at 3:34
• @Duck Well, back to the beginning then :D – Kevin L Oct 22 '18 at 4:40

Could it be a

pole/poll?

It might be something 10 feet away from you

One end of it, at least, since a 10-ft. pole is the measuring device for things you want to keep away, as in the phrase "I wouldn't touch that soup with a ten foot pole."

Or it could be a verb

To take a survey is to poll a group.

In movies, this would be an escape route

Because real firefighters don't use them to get down from high places, but fictional people are often portrayed as doing so.

I chose these because of me

You are not really a duck. You are a decoy, and thus could use one of these to support yourself. (I see no evidence that you are from Poland, or I would have gone with that.)

May it be...

stairs / stares

It might be something 10 feet away from you

In a house or in most of the buildings

Or it could be a verb

It is, and it may also be rude :)

In movies, this would be an escape route

Often, when bad guys (or policemen according to the kind of movies) reach the front door

I chose these because of me

You are not a real duck, like WAF said... so I think you have a fix gaze... a stare!
